The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/09/15

Is it trip report time again already? Yay! I’ll be looking back at my Dopey trip at the beginning of January, with special separate posts for each race and some food experiences depending on how much I have to say about them. You can read all the posts in this particular trip report here. Ready? Let’s go! Thanks to a much improved bus situation during the 10K, I got back to the room a good twenty minutes early than the day previous.
